DIBRUGARH: An interactive programme, organized by the Debating and literary Society along with the 'Career Counseling & Placement Cell' of Manohari Devi Kanoi Girls College (MDKG College) on October 9 began with a welcome speech of the College Principal Dr Nivedita Phukan.
Author and entrepreneur Purabi Roy from Surat in Gujarat as the guest speaker spoke at length about her own journey from being a lecturer in English at Bongaigaon College to her present status as a successful entrepreneur. She talked about her own experiences from her change in career and the decisions she took in her life. Roy explicates that in order to start something new, one needs to keep oneself upgraded.
She was an apprentice under her husband for three years from whom she learnt about designing. As she progressed in her career, she learned how to manage finances and how to procure financial aids from different sources.
There were various difficulties in her career but she faced them squarely and decided that just because she was a woman does not mean that she will allow herself to be dominated by others. She also emphasized that one should be dedicated towards what one has an interest in and pursue it at all costs.
She pursued her interest in writing despite all odds and has initially written in social media from where she found inspiration to ultimately publish .She has recently opened up a unit of her manufacturing and wholesale unit Rajbari titled Rajnandika at Guwahati along with twelve other women.
She urged the students to go for what they want to do and to forge an identity for themselves that is not necessarily based on their parents' or husband's identity.
Along with Purabi Roy another guest Nandita Talukdar, Advocate Guwahati High Court also spoke on the occasion . "We will always face adverse circumstances as women. What is necessary is that we should learn to handle the situation and make ourselves adept according to the situation," said Talukdar.
